The Swaffhams Partnership

Policies set out the rationale and procedures for the management and leadership of the school, the children’s learning and health and safety. They reflect our school philosophy. The Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT), staff and the Governing Body regularly review all policies. Overall responsibility of the implementation lies with the Head teacher, although subject co-ordinators lead reviews and curriculum monitoring.

Policies are available for parents to see and we have included the most relevant on the web site. Paper copies can be requested free of charge from the school office or by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

All DEMAT schools are required to use the following policies which have been adopted and approved by our Local Governing Body. These have been personalised to our school by including here a statement of our vision:

We want all children to learn within a safe, and peaceful community. Through broad and balanced experiences, we inspire wonder, encourage perseverance and individual growth. Our Christian values underpin our peaceful school where we work in partnership with families to nurture the whole child and instil compassion towards others providing a basis for a hopeful future.
